Lamar Jackson breaks Michael Vick's single-season QB rushing record

Ravens

Lamar Jackson's incredible 2019 season continues to become more impressive by the week.

In the  first quarter of the Ravens' Thursday Night Football contest against the Jets, Jackson surpassed Michael Vick for most rushing yards by a quarterback in a single-season.

The MVP favorite entered Week 15 just 23 yards short of Vick's record. Last week, Jackson became just the second quarterback to have over 1,000 rushing yards in a season.

What's even more remarkable is he has topped the thousand-yard mark on just 151 carries. Jackson has scored seven times on the ground and his 6.7 yards-per-carry is the NFL's best this season among qualified rushers. With just three games to go, Jackson is in the NFL's top 10 for rushing yards, and he's doing it all as a quarterback. 

 

But what the second-year signal-caller has done with his arm has been just as impressive, if not more, than what he's done with his legs. Entering Week 15, Jackson led the NFL in touchdown passes with 28 while having thrown just six interceptions. 

The 22-year-old has led Baltimore to nine-straight victories, including wins over some of the NFL's best in Seattle, New England, San Francisco and Buffalo.

If any team has hopes of beating the Ravens in the playoffs, they will have to slow Jackson down. So far, that's been nearly impossible to do.
